I had forgotten about this dedication until Valerie Gangas shared it on Twitter today.

It’s a well-written strong dedication (even if I do say so myself, having written it). This is the kind of dedication you want to write for your book, one that stirs your readers to post your dedication on their refrigerator doors! That’s a dedication that does its work effectively.
Dedication to 1001 Ways to Market Your Books
To lovers of books . . .
I hope this book helps you to get your work out to a wider audience, that it allows you to stir the hearts and minds of many, many people.
I would love nothing more than to see your book in the hands of people everywhere—readers walking down the street, browsers in the bookstores, vacationers at the beach, students in the classroom, secretaries at the office, mothers at home.
That’s a great challenge, and maybe it’s not possible to achieve. But it is certainly worth an attempt. Even several attempts.
Take your time. Do it right. And enjoy.
That’s the best advice I can give you.
